Thanks for the ID! There were probably half a dozen to a dozen along this road at the entrance to a national park.

Very nice spot. This frog is listed as "Near Threatened" in CA by the World Conservation Union. It is rare spots like these that make a big impact in the protection of imperiled species :)
